The first layout was made with a sketch from Studio Calico, and I can't believe I hadn't tried a large circle element before. I love the way it looks and you'll be seeing another from me in the near future! I traced my circle from a dinner plate and then hand cranked my sewing machine around and around. The embellishments are labels I printed on vellum, a journaling card I'd made previously, along with some of the vellum die cuts, stamping, and Thickers.
With my enjoyment of working with sketches, it was a no brainer for me to take the latest Sketchbook class at SC. This is only the second class I've ever taken, and while the class lessons are mine forever, it's motivated me to carve out some time to get these pages done.
This is actually similar to a page design I've used before, because it works well for when you have both, landscape and portrait photos. I'll be back after the holiday with the other two pages that complete this lovely afternoon. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
